Michael Masi removed as F1 race director as part of FIA restructure in wake of Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Michael Masi has been removed as F1 race director as part of a restructure at governing body the FIA in the wake of last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Masi assumed the role of race director when Whiting died on the eve of the 2019 F1 season. Masi will be “offered a new position within the FIA”, Ben Sulayem said. An FIA spokesman said the report into the failings at Abu Dhabi would be published at the season-opening race in Bahrain on 19 March. “With this plan, FIA opens the way for a new step forward in Formula 1 refereeing. “Respect and support of the referees is in the essence of the FIA.
